dire,your isp provider usually caps upload speed.i'm capped at 40-45,while my download speed is decent.comcast will give me 70kb for an extra 10 dollars a month,which i might do.

I often have 0 upload speed regardless of my down speed. Makes it virtually impossible to keep the ratios even.

On some sites the ratios are actually viewable for other people. You will never get booted with a ratio like that since there are plenty with ratios below 20%.Find anything fun recently on dime?

that's cool - thanks for that info Jody - i was afraid the admins would boot someone if a ratio went too low. Ive been trying to tread water above .75. Maybe it's just the seeders that will boot if they don't like my ratio.

found a couple of cool Gabriel, Rush, Fairport shows on dime - but theyve been down the past few days (for maintanance i'll assume). Haven't had too much of a chance to really search too much stuff out.

you can convert flac/shn to wave (then burn the wave's) while seeding, as long as you don't eliminate then in the process. No need to stop the uploading, that way you can upload to improve yer ratio. Chances are, you know all this...
